Default need your input on my ae 12R5.1

hey! just finished building my kit and i need your expert input on this one.. i broke the original servo saver that came with the kit as i forced it in my futaba servo till it broke. the only servo saver i have is from my old Tamiya F103. it works but the angle of the steering rod is a little higher than it is suppose to be. i am wondering how this will effect the steering of my car. i will run the car tomorrow at our local track here is a picture

You really need to get a proper servo saver in there.

You'll find all the info you need in the R5 thread

First of all the AE supplied servo saver in the kit is a Kimbrough 23 spline for Airtronics/Sanwa or JR or KO. You can get the same Kimbrough saver in the Futaba 25 spline version.

As long as you have the tie rods set correctly you will not notice much effect of being a bit higher. You will notice a problem if that servo saver doesn't fit the splines on the output shaft.

One thing you're going to notice is bumpsteer will probably be increased. Can you drill new holes beneath the existing ones on that large blank area?
